Apps are not giving notifications

    So lately while installing new apps on my OnePlus 6 I do not get any notifications from those apps. I have checked all settings but cannot find anything.

    It is quite annoying since I want to install a habit tracker that reminds me of habbits. The notifications I am setting up are not coming to the phone.

    Does anyone have any idea what this could be?

    A couple of things come to mind.. A few months ago, the reminder app on my phone (OnePlus 7) stopped reminding me, this was apparently due to an android update, and the author of the app fixed it within a couple of weeks, explaining that it was the android update that had caused the problem. This may be similar, and the app you're using hasn't been updated. The other thing is, are you using the stock launcher, or another? I switch these around all the time, and have found that in order to receive notifications in a different launcher, you have to give that launcher permission to do notifications. Hope some of this helps!

Swipe for Facebook Forum


Why sacrifice your privacy or an awesome user experience when you can have both? Meet Swipe, the best Facebook alternative - lightweight, highly customizable, and battery friendly, with a strict “no tracking” policy to ensure your privacy is secured.
It isn’t really a secret - the official app is bloated, slow, power hungry, and doesn’t have your privacy in mind. Many alternatives have tried, but surely, you’ve found most just lack in overall quality. That’s why Swipe is your answer - with a robust day/night theming engine, Messages access built-in (Chat Heads included), customizable widget for your notifications and messages, as well as an ad blocker to filter out the noise, you’ll find lots to love. FACEBOOK & MESSENGER – CHAT HEADS INCLUDED
When you can have both for less than 5MB, the decision in 2014 to split the most popular social media app doesn’t really make much sense. Switching to Swipe saves you hundreds of MB on your phone, so that you can use the extra space saved for things that matter most. As an added bonus, Swipe comes with Chat Heads too! Keep on chatting away with friends even when you’re using another app. BLOCK ADS, PROTECT YOUR PRIVACY
No one likes them, and in Swipe, you don’t have to endure them! There are absolutely no advertisements from Swipe, and sponsored content from Facebook can be blocked as well. There’s also no tracking in Swipe - your connection is encrypted and any data you share goes directly to Facebook’s servers. THE BEST DAY/NIGHT THEMING ENGINE EVER!
Swipe’s theming engine is next-level. There’s just no comparison. While theming isn’t new, you can now assign each theme element their own color (you can even put in hex codes). If tinkering isn’t for you, we have some beautiful preset ones we’re sure you’ll love! You can even change how the app looks and feels – whether tabs are at the top or bottom, titles are centered or left-aligned, card or flat views, and whether to use the classic Floating Action Button or the modern swipe up Bottom Sheet Menu. The icing on the cake is that you can set these separately for both the day and night themes, and themes can switch automatically in the morning and evening. WIDGETS LET NOTIFICATIONS LIVE AT HOME
Read your latest notifications and messages right on your home screen, without having to open the app. The widget is automatically updated as you use the app and when notifications are fetched. Swipe’s Widget is just as customizable as the app itself, allowing you to pick just about any color your heart desires – or even make it transparent to let your wallpaper shine through! FULL CONTROL OF YOUR NOTIFICATIONS
Not only can you receive both notifications from Facebook and Messenger, but you can even set up quiet hours (when notifications shouldn’t come through) and filters (items you don’t want to be notified about). DISCREET PHOTO & VIDEO DOWNLOADS
Downloading photos and videos in Swipe is not only easy, it is more importantly discreet – without notifying the person or page about the download. KEEP PRYING EYES AWAY WITH SECURITY LOCK
It isn’t uncommon to hand your phone to a friend or family member to show them a funny video or interesting photo. Keep your Facebook account safe from others by setting up Security Lock and requiring a PIN code or fingerprint to open the app. --- There is much, much more that makes Swipe the best Facebook alternative out there, but I think it’s time to give it a spin yourself. It’s better in every single way. You’ll feel it.
